I know last time we talked I said that I didn’t have much to say about Jurassic World, but I’ve changed my mind. I still think it’s a very entertaining movie. My grumble is with the characters. None of them are terribly interesting. Except, I guess, maybe the dinosaurs. And even then, I think that has more to do with projection than actual personality. Continue reading
Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s free-to-play MOBA (multi-player online battle arena), which is basically an action/strategy brawler with a focus on teamwork. Featuring the classic matchup of red versus blue, two opposing teams stomp across a map where they go after map objectives and engage in massive team fights.
Let’s just get this out of the way: I saw Jurassic World. And so did everyone else in the world, apparently. I enjoyed it for what it was, but it’s not as special as that first movie. I’m sure in 15 years we’ll be reading all sorts of stuff about how it means the world to people, but for now I just don’t have much to say about it. Instead, I’m going to talk about two Marvel crossovers that I’ve been reading. Continue reading
At the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, I discovered a hilarious web comic run made by Matt Lubchansky.
If you’re a fan of intelligent fart jokes, head over to Listen-Tome.com and check out them web comics.
It occurred to me today that I haven’t gone into much detail about my thoughts on the Daredevil TV series. In fact, my mini-grumble where I mentioned it spent more time on the still uncast and unscheduled Iron Fist series. So, this time I’m going to dedicate an entire grumble to DD’s show.

Spy is a light-hearted comedy that’s put together really well. Melissa McCarthy plays an office worker at a spy agency who suddenly finds herself doing field work as an agent. Opposite her is Jason Statham, a badass veteran spy who belittles her ability to be a “real” agent. She becomes the underdog who has to prove herself against a cast of larger-than-life characters that you might find in a James Bond movie. If you’re looking for light-hearted comedy and don’t care that it’s not set in a fantasy medieval world and not about some old dude’s birthday, I would recommend this film to you.
This seemed like a good idea.
But really it’s crap.
Today is an incredible day for all of us at Uberfriendship. One of the founding Uberfriends is entering his fourth decade on the planet. Shaggy Shan, a king amongst nerds, is having a birthday! I’m not sure where you’re reading this, but in Canada it’s typical for the birthday boy to receive presents. I’ve never been one to follow expectations though, so I’m going to talk about some of the gifts that Shaggy has given me over the years. Continue reading
I’ve spent the better part of two days trying to come up with something to Grumble about this week, and I’m stumped. There’s no big news or movie to grumble about, and I’m six months behind on my comics so that’s no good either. I can say that I find the Marvel Axis crossover comics dumb, but fun. Maybe when I finish the storyline I’ll go into more detail, but that’s all I’ve got right now. The only thing I can think of is to talk about some movies I’ve seen on Netflix and DVD recently and let you know what I thought. Continue reading
No specific writing agenda today, so I’m just going to ramble until I hit my quota. Ready?
I saw Mad Max: Fury Road AGAIN on the weekend. Man, that movie is so much fun. I’m probably going to see it at least one more time in theatres. I’ll probably get it on Blu-Ray too, but I just can’t imagine it having the same impact on the small screen. When we left the theatre this last time, one of my buddies who I saw it with asked if I noticed anything that I missed the first time. What came to mind was actually kind of a small detail. There’s a part where a truck that’s covered in amps, drums, and a guitar crashes and flies to pieces. Amongst the debris are a bunch of other instruments – a tuba, a french horn, stuff like that. Just a nice, weird touch that makes me love the movie even more. Continue reading
